|Ice Albedo - Global View - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab|
This is a conceptual animation showing how polar ice reflects light from the sun. As this ice begins to melt, less sunlight gets reflected into space. It is instead absorbed into the oceans and land, raising the overall temperature, and fueling further melting. Note: This is the high definition version of the Ice Albedo-Global animation MPEG. Animator: Susan Twardy (HTSI), Cindy Starr (GST). Scientist: Claire Parkinson (NASA/GSFC), Waleed Abdalati (NASA/GSFC), Reto Stockli (NASA/GSFC)...
